Zotero is a free, easy-to-use tool that helps you collect, manage, cite, and share your research sources. If you've never used Zotero before, you'll need to download it and then register for a free account. For help getting started, see the Zotero Quick Start Guide.
Group members can use Zotero Groups to collaborate on their project. Members can create a new Zotero group and then share project resources online.
